Leeds United midfielder and England international Kalvin Phillips believes Chelsea superstar Mason Mount would be a ‘superstar’ if he plays under Marcelo Bielsa at Leeds United.

Asked to name one England player he would love to see at Leeds – not including Ben White, who played under Bielsa on loan in the 2019/20 season – Phillips told England’s YouTube channel: “I’d probably say Mason Mount.

“I feel like me and Mason get on quite well, but just the way we play.

“The way he presses in his position and the positions he gets himself into would suit Leeds United.

“He could probably take the way the manager works on board and he’d be a superstar if he came to Leeds.”

Mount is already a superstar at Chelsea, so it’s quite surprising Phillips thinks he would become a superstar at Leeds United. Mount is already bigger than Leeds United.
